The Faux Fur Pom Pom is a free crochet pattern and ideal for a quick project to add an amazing feature to your hats and beanies. It’s fun and easy to make too. Perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons. A video Tutorial provided.

After I published the Faux Fur Ear Warmers, I knew I had to create a pattern for a Faux Fur Pom Pom. It’s the perfect time, too. It’s already Fall, almost Winter. Therefore it’s craft season.

Many crafters, crocheters and knitters are working on their hats and beanies and need to make them beautiful with one small extra accessory. This Faux Fur pom pom will give it the extra flair it needs.

I used Knit Picks/ WeCrochet’s Fable Fur yarn (provided to me for free so I can create this amazing quick pattern. Thanks! Kit Picks). It’s simply the best yarn to use for crocheting faux fur. I’ve tried several different types of faux fur. And this one is simply the best.

You might not be able to SEE the stitches. But you sure can FEEL the stitches due to the band that holds the faux fur together. It’s not too thick that it would take away from the faux fur feeling, but it allows you to feel the stitches.

Some other faux fur yarns either have very long “hair” of faux fur or they don’t have a nice band that holds the faux fur that can be felt.
